Paola Pivi’s interdisciplinary artistic practice combines the familiar with the bizarre. The artist shifts viewer’s expectations of rules, categories and boundaries; her parallel universes encourage us to recognize divisions we take for granted. You Know Who I Am (2022) is a cast bronze replica of the Statue of Liberty wearing cartoonish masks – stylized portraits of individuals whose personal experiences of freedom are directly connected to the United States. The masks change every two months, representing different people over the course of the exhibition.  Continue reading Paola Pivi’s You Know Who I Am On The High Line

Thanks to the successful rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine, we can finally start to think about the possibility of traveling during the pandemic. But while the numbers may be down, we still have to  remain cautious and take the basic steps (masking up, washing hands frequently, and keeping socially distant) to ensure our health and safety while on vacation. With that in mind, one item you will want to toss into your carry-on is a travel-size bottle of Disinfect & Shield 24 Hour Face Mask/Fabric Sanitizer.

Unlike traditional disinfectants on the market, Disinfect & Shield is non-toxic and completely safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Disinfect & Shield has been tested to destroy viruses, bacteria, molds, and fungi, including strains of SARS, H1N1, E. Coli, EBOLA and harmful microbes including COVID-19 on contact.

Eye On Design: Pizza Is My Valentine T-Shirt!

Since the beginning of the pandemic, about one hundred million billion years ago, one of my greatest joys in life is ordering a large pepperoni Pizza, which I eat entirely by myself, freezing the leftovers for additional meals, so that I can feel the Hot Pizza Love over and over again. For this reason I often joke (half seriously) that Pizza is My Boyfriend and no one can come between us. With Valentines Day coming up sooner than you think, perhaps Pizza will also be your Valentine this year? If so, then why not own this T-Shirt as a sign of your endless love?

Pizza is My Valentine, by Perfect Designers, is available emblazoned shamelessly on a variety of garments including Hoodies, Masks, Long-Sleeve Ts and more, plus assorted T Shirt styles and colors starting at just $24.95. Check out This Link to purchase!
